Thirteen-year-old Kaethe Loewenthal (later KG) recited her own poem "Wake up, Jews!" at a children's Hanukkah party, pretending (to save her embarrassment) that it was a text from a book.
KG's We Came as Children
collected the witness of former Jewish child refugees from Nazi Germany
and its conquered territories, especially those who came on 'Kindertransport' ships without their parents.
